1303 San Jacinto St. Houaton. Taxaa 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VIH Number 4 November 1979 LSAT Among Tests Now Being Challenged by William Thuraland Staff Writer Each year millions of students across the country have their educational futures determined by the scores they receive on standardized tests. Typically a three-hour exam is as influential in deciding who will be admitted to a particular college or profes- sional school as the applicant's scholastic record. Yet the process by which these tests are scored, how the scores are reported and which answers are correct is shrouded in mys- tery. Last June New York took the first step in shedding light on standardized testing procedures by enacting the Truth-In-Testing bill. Landmark Legislation This landmark legislation re- quires testing companies to re- veal how test scores are used and determined and to disclose statis- tical data and studies on test validity to the State Com- missioner of Education. It further requires companies t...

Need for Disclosure These examples illustrate the need to extend the concept of Truth-In-Testing and Advertising to standardized testing. Dis- closure should if anything make the test companies more respons- ible and efficient as it has with other businesses which previous- ly operated under the veil of secrecy. The testing companies and their allies have not remained passive in the face of this challenge to their supremacy. Last July, for instance, the Association of American Medical Colleges announced that they would no longer give standard- ized entrance exams in New York. Other threats include hiking the test fee by unprecedented amounts in New York and cutting down on the number of test dates available to New York students. The chief sponsor of the bill has remained undaunted. "Stand- ardized tests results have become...

Did you ever take any books from the library or from your fellow students? Suppose you had to take a polygraph examination as a prerequisite to taking the bar exam. Do you think you could pass the polygraph test? What if your client came to you and asked your advice as to whether to take a polygraph examination, with your knowing full well that he did brutally assault that 7-year-old child? What would you advise him? Do you remember the first time you were caught in a lie? Your cheeks probably became flushed because you were embarrassed. Your heart was beating a little faster and perhaps you began to breathe a little faster and more heavily, too. If you were caught in a reall...

Much of the book also seems to confirm rumors that have abounded in legal circles for years — that Nixon should have appointed Burger to the executive branch or that Burger should have run for Congress — and that drafts of his judicial opinions are usually in- ferior, often necessitating con- siderable rewriting by the other Justices. Burger may run a tight oval office as an administrator (he won't permit press interviews or allow the press to photograph or record his public speeches), but as our nation's 15th Chief Judicial Officer, his reported attempts (with some success) to mani- pulate and coerce his brethren into changing their votes by rubber-stamping his opinions are hardly laudatory.

Kramer Has A Point by Kevin George Staff Writer For those who look upon the movie as a means by which to understand and appreciate events that otherwise might not affect their own lives, I heartily recom- ment Kramer vs. Kramer. Put into proper perspective, the film focuses attention on the potential consequences of certain court decisions — those affecting the care and custody of children. The field of domestic relations, an area needing much research and refinement, should substitute for the rigidity of legal presumptions not only intelligence, compassion, and foresight, but a p...

The request for South Texas to organize the mock trial competi- tion came at the instance of the Texas Young Lawyers Associa- tion, sponsor of the event. Texas Tech of Lubbock had been set to host the competition until less than a month ago. Twenty-two teams from a total of 11 law schools in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma are scheduled to contend for the Regional Mock Trial champion- ship, which has as its topic this year a civil law problem.

During the pre-sentence in- vestigation, the probation offi- cer's attention should concentrate on the facts of the case and the degree of the defendant's par- ticipation in the offense. Then if any mitigating facts are dis- covered that suggest referral to a more appropriate agency for dis- position, they should be made known to the prosecutor's office. Unfortunately this is not the rule. To illustrate: Of the 602 unused pre-sentence reports prepared for fiscal year 1968 in some 13 juris- dictions studied, 416 or two-thirds were the result of dismissal or failure to obtain grand jury indictment, accord...

Page 4 — ANNOTATIONS - February 1980 Spring Schedule Among Tortfeasors Proposed Contribution Rule Challenged by William Thursland Staff Writer The stage has been set for a far-reaching decision in the field of antitrust law. The long-estab- lished rule against contribution among joint intentional tort- feasors is being challenged in the U.S. Congress and the federal courts. Nearly two centuries ago in Merryweather v. Nlxan (K.B. 1799) Lord Kenyon refused tcr allow contribution among such joint tortfeasors, reasoning that by making each defendant indi- viduajly responsible for the damage done by all wrongdoers, the deterrent effect of the law would be enhanced. This rule survived with only slight modifications until last year, when the Eighth Circuit in Professional Beauty Supply Inc. v. National Beauty Supply Inc. held that under certain circum- stances an antitrust defendant may be entitled to pro rata contribution from other joint tort- feasors. In the wake of this decision the co...
